Sorry For the loss ,we all miss you Milind RIP ,Gauri ,Vinayak Aaditya and Family Take Care
Milindiji lived a true Vedantic life. Quiet and simple. Few spoken words, no ego, no controversies, no ill thoughts about anything or anyone.
His heart was big. Volunteering always, to help so many youngsters, so quietly. Always opening his house to the masses, every year, never expecting anything in return. Year after year after year, he worked hard, to decorate, to create an ambience, of warmth and love, to welcome the entire community, to his house, to a place that smelt of divinity.
A divine soul on a divine journey. It's not a surprise that he chose to leave for Vaikuntha on Vaikuntha Ekadashi. His life celebrated on Makar Sankranthi. This is no coincidence.
Few such people have walked this Earth, and we are so lucky to have known him.
Hari Om dear Milind, wishing you a peaceful journey to your ultimate home.
My wife Asha and I met Milind ji and Gauri ji and Children on several occasions during our visits to Iowa and theirs to Bloomington and Central Illinois. Milind ji has been known for his simplicity and service to society. He was always thoughtful and soft spoken.
His devotion to Sewa and community service will always be remembered. We pray for Peaceful Journey, sadgati, for the parted Atman.
Our prayers for Gauriji, Vinayak and Aditya. OM. Shanti.

Our deepest condolences to the Deshpande family. Milind was a good friend and a devout Ganesha Bhakta. May his soul rest in peace in heavenly abodes.
My Shradhanjali to Milindji.
His guidance and leadership helped in serving Iowa city communities through Ekal, Sewa & HSS organizations. His support to hundreds of Indian Students in Iowa City over the years was enormous. We will miss Milindji.
OM Shanti Shanti Shanti
My sincere condolences go to Milind's family. He was a fine man and a dedicated academic professional for many years at the CBB on the UI Research Park. Milind will be long and warmly remembered by so many. Tom Bauer
Please accept my deepest sympathy at the passing of Milind. I worked with him at CBB in the office. Milind had great dedication to the CBB and worked long hours to accomplish the many tasks for which he was responsible. He was also a deeply religious man and made an effort to expose others to those beliefs - I remember attending a festival at his home with dancing and many delicious foods.
Please accept my condolences on the passing of Milind. He was was my supervisor at the CBB over 25 years ago. He was great teacher, showed me tremendous patience and understanding, and was both a mentor and friend.
I would like to pass on my condolences, very sad news. I worked with Milind at the CBB many moons ago and enjoyed working with him, I learned a lot from him. He made my transition from Ireland to Iowa an easy one and was very welcoming.
May Milind's soul rest in peace.
